If you’re going to take a picture and strip away its colours, you must be ready to build up the fantasy using a different kind of foundation. In photography, the combination of black and white has it all: it conveys emotion, it disguises the passage of time, it brings every thought together, aligning the different realities into a perfect chronicle. If atemporality would ever need explaining, Jorge Cal’s photo shoot would make for an accurate illustration.

Starring a beautiful Andra Toth, the photo shoot plays upon the female dandysm, mixing up simplicity with delicacy, only to be topped off by a tailored kind of sensuality. It may be the slim-cut jacket laid against the bare skin, the basic suspenders adding contrasts to some easy, flowing blouses, a chic hat or perhaps the divergent embellishments, but although masculine at their very core, every single one of the items ends up highlighting the femininity.

Check the gallery for the complete photo shoot featuring make-up and hair styling by Victoria Marie Goulding. For more photography by Jorge Cal, visit this link.
